NaNoWriMo Day 1
OK, before I get back to #writing that will count towards my total, here's some tactics:
I'm splitting the work between a short stint first thing in the morning, and a longer shift after dinner. I'm working in LyX as usual, but it's a nuisance booting up the desktop machine for a short session. So to maintain velocity, I'm going to be typing random stuff into a Google Docs document (outlines, fragments, notes) in the morning, using my chromebook, on the couch, with a nice cup of tea. In the evening, I'll be pasting chunks worth keeping into my master document, writing more around it, and pushing it to a git repository for backup, then updating my daily total before bed.
Because I can access the master document and the scratch file at work during lunchtime, that can be a time for making further notes or tidying.
People say just keep writing words and don't edit: those people are not me. Part of keeping it moving is not getting snarled up with a hundred things at the back of my mind that need fixing, If I fix them (good enough for a first draft anyway) I will actually write faster. Also, I tend to draft short and expand, so really most of the editing I'll be doing is adding to my word total anyway.
Don't get hung up on writing it in the right order. I have a good outline, so I can dive in and write whichever bit of it I have lines for in my head at the time.
Keep loving it. If I keep loving it, I'll keep doing it.
And, it's time to get back to it.
